credit. according to a report in the "washington post," president obama's economic advisors aand outside experts say the nation's much celebrated housing rebound is leaving too many people hyped, including young people looking to buy their first homes and individuals with credit records that were weakened by the recession. in response, administration officials say they are working to get banks to lend to a wider range of borrowers by taking advantage of taxpayer backed programs, including those offered by the federal housing administration that insure home loans against default. wait a minute. this is the exact tactic that caused the housing bubble and the housing market to crash years ago. is washington ever going to learn from its past mistakes? just another sign that the administration has no idea what they're doing. joining me with reaction, the founder of campens company and ceo of the bab group, real estate analyze, dani babb. the community reinvestment act, wasn't that the government started under jimmy carter, doubled down by bill clinton and increased under clinton that forced b
